FUN FOLD Using Two Tags - November 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Christmas Card - Stampin' Up!

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. I love getting my Paper Pumpkin Kit every month and creating fun alternative projects using the supplies in the kit. Today I am sharing my second alternative idea using the November 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – From The North Pole.

This kit comes with everything you need to make 12 Christmas Gift Tags, 4 in three different designs. This kit is so festive. I love the different tags colors and shapes, the cute die cuts & stamp images. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative projects. Today I am sharing with you this this fun fold card using the tops of the tags to create a gate type closure. Everyone loves a fun fold card, and I know you will love how easy it is to create using two tags from the kit. I love creating alternative projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more as I continue to create with this month’s kit.

1- Begin by cutting off 1 ¾” from the right side on the front of the cardbase. Trim this smaller piece to 5 ¼”.

2- Stamp on the 2 ¼” x 5 ¼” & 1 ¾” x 5 ¼” Cherry Cobbler pieces a random pattern with the small dot from the stamp set in the kit. I used Cherry Cobbler ink.

3- Stamp a floral image in Early Espresso ink on Basic White Cardstock. Cut out with coordinating die. You can use any floral image, I used one from the Framed Florets Stamp Set. I separated my floral grouping into two sections so it would fit better on the tag. See video for details.

4- Stamp the same image in Early Espresso on the 2 ½” x 5 ¼” Basic White piece in the bottom left corner. Add this to the inside of the cardbase behind the front flap.

5- Cut the first tag to 3”. Place the tag along the top of the paper trimmer with the top of the tag at 3”. Remove about ½” from the bottom. Don't throw away the bottom piece!

6- Cut the second tag at 1 ½”. Place the tag along the top of the paper trimmer with the top of the tag at 1 ½”. Remove about 2” from the bottom. Then slide the top of the tag to 1 ¼” and score. You may want to use a little washi tape to hold the tag in place. See video for details. Don't throw away the bottom piece!

7- Fold the smaller tag along the score line and add adhesive to the back of the ¼” section at the bottom. Adhere the ¼” section to the back of the smaller 1 ¾” Cherry Cobbler piece on the right side about ¾” from the bottom. The top of the tag should fold over the top of the Cherry Cobbler piece creating the right side of the “gate” closure.

8- Adhere the large tag to the top of the large 2 ¼” Cherry Cobbler piece with the straight edges lining up on the left side about ¾” from the bottom. Make sure there is no adhesive on the top of the tag.

9- Adhere half of one snowflake to the bottom left corner of the large 2 ¼” Cherry Cobbler piece. Add adhesive to the bottom half of the snowflake leaving the top open so we can slide something underneath. Trim off the excess.

10- Add the excess to the top right area on the smaller 1 ¾” Cherry Cobbler piece under the tag.

11- Add the Cherry Cobbler pieces to the cardbase. The large on the small front flap and the smaller on the bottom open area, it will overlap the white piece slightly. There will be a small border around the pieces. The tags should meet together.

12- Add the floral images with dimensionals in the center of the large tag. Tucking one behind the snowflake. Add the greeting with dimensionals matching the left side with the edge of the Cherry Cobbler piece. See video.

13- Write your message on the Basic White piece and tie closed with 10” of Twine.

14- Add any embellishments as you wish. I used the Iridescent Rhinestones.

All Done!
